God Keep Our Land Glorious and Free...


We celebrated the birthday of our great nation again last weekend!  Canada Day is always a day we look forward to.  It usually brings good weather, good entertainment and great times with friends.  We started off the day by sleeping in (yeah) and then it was off to the parade! This year Rob was able to sit and watch the parade with us since he wasn't pulling Gallery7's float this year.  Ken also joined us for the parade.  I grabbed a quick Starbucks for a treat and we met up with friends and proceeded to take up most of the sidewalk for a block!!!  This year was a great parade, lots of floats, lots of good music, and lots of candy for the kids!  Rob went to work after the parade and then we picked up 2 Japanese students in the afternoon.  We met up with some other friends who were hosting students and we had a great bbq followed by a night at the fireworks.  It was a busy and full day, but very fun!

The gals, the guys..and the 'crew'!

I have a 'thing' for bagpipes.  I love them!  I think it could have something to do with the fact that my maiden name is McIntosh???  Maybe.  Either way, I love em'.
I used to have an ongoing joke with my Father-in-law about bagpipes.  He hated them, I loved them.  Whenever we heard them we'd look at each other and I'd smile and he'd grimace!  I even bought him a tape (yes, it was that long ago) of all bagpipe playing one year for Christmas!  Seems so funny now that it was something we bonded over...

No country parade is complete without a little tractor representation!  Although we prefer the green & yellow, we tolerate those who don't know any better;)

Perfect way to end the day....
